Event description

Description

In February, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Ed Markey released the Green New Deal Resolution, which seeks to address climate change by creating millions of new green jobs that will decarbonize our economy. These broad brush strokes provide the framework. Now we as a society get to have a conversation about what we want the details to be. Join us for a community discussion!
